About this Book

Gravel-Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments presents a definitive review of current knowledge of gravel-bed rivers, derived from the 7th International Gravel-bed Rivers Workshop, the 5-yearly meeting of the world's leading authorities in the field.

Each chapter in the book has been specifically commissioned to represent areas in which recent progress has been made in the field. The topics covered also represent a coherent progression through the principal areas of the subject (hydraulics; sediment transport; river morphology; tools and methods; applications of science).

  • Definitive review of the current knowledge of gravel-bed rivers
  • Coverage of both fundamental and applied topics
  • Edited by leading academics with contributions from key researchers
  • Thoroughly edited for quality and consistency to provide coherent and logical progression through the principal areas of the subject.
